Boulder Cove as seen from Craterview.

Boulder Cove is a near Ghost Town located near Lake Mead in the US state of Arizona in After the Flash: Mirage.


Boulder Cove is a pre-war town that sits beside Lake Mead at the map’s south end. Due to the mesas beside the town, much of it was protected from the nuclear blast. The town has been looted for the past four decades, but some supplies may remain in various locations. Various groups of people make this set of ruins their home for short periods of time, however one survivor faction makes its home in the parking lot of the Outdoors Store beside the lake.

Leaflet Bomb Event

The sound of a loud bang was heard in Craterview. Few were able to identify it as the sound of a mortar. As people began to look for shelter in the streets, they were surprised to see that the payload of the bombs were actually papers. The papers, or leaflets, yielded a lot of information on the mutant disease.

The leaflets stated that Boulder Cove isn't safe due to the high number of RAD-8 type mutant sightings in the area and advised not to travel through there alone. They explained how the disease works, the stages, and how to prevent infection. Additionally, there was information on how to fight the different stages of mutants and what to do if you think you're infected. For those who aren't well educated or lack experience against mutants, this was a god send.

The Mutant Menace Rises

With the recent resurgence of mutants, Boulder Cove has been rendered a Hot Zone for mutant activity. Though, the explanation for their activity remains unseen. Unknown to everybody living in the valley, the Power Plant's underground biomass had begun to grow in the cold, damp climate, and was slowly crawling out of it's pit. With this, the mutants are getting aggressive, territorial, and it stands only as trouble for every soul in the Lake Mead Valley.
